1930's Pink Frosted Glass Pedestal Serving Plate - Carol Pink by Lancaster - Satin Frosted
I don't ask you always to love me like this, but I ask you to remember. F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is what your glass collection looked like in the 1930's. It was frosted and pink and slippery smooth to the touch. It had hand painted flowers and feet and a ruffled edge. Above all, it was feminine and pretty and functional. Introducing the depression-era glass pattern - Carol Pink - made by Lancaster Glass Company in Lancaster, Ohio.
Debuting during the same decade that F. Scott Fitzgerald penned Tender Is The Night, this footed serving piece was also embarking on its own similar yet delicate journey through sentiment and nostalgia. Both an artistic statement piece as well as a functional holder for a variety of foodstuffs from hors d'ouevres to desserts, petit fours to fruit and everything in between, it is a serving piece that floats through time and history like a gauzy romance. Remarkable, unique and effortlessly lovely this plate fulfills both real-life purposes and dreamy whimsicality.
Frosted, smooth and semi-transparent, like sea glass collected on the beach, Lancaster offered a number of different patterns in this style including Kay, Darlene and Carol. This is the Carol pattern which features dabs of paint that resemble cherry blossoms. Lancaster, which originally started in 1908, became part of the Anchor Hocking Glass Company in 1924 but continued using the Lancaster name until the late 1930's just after this plate was made.
